Watercolor Paint

  Hello Friends
I have been having so much fun with my new watercolor paints :) I have not had time to put any of them on my blog so I thought I would put a couple up today.  I have had some people ask me what kind of paper and paints I am using. The paper is 140lb Marseilles Studios Watercolor Pad I bought it from a discount store for $2.49. The paints are Sakura Koi Watercolor Field Sketch Set.



This was my first card I made using the watercolor paints. I used my favourite Unity stamp on this one called Your Wings Exist.



 I made another card today on this card I did a watercolor wash with the background. I also learned something NOT to do. When you mix the white paint with your watercolors it makes your color opaque and no longer transparent. This is what happened on my flowers. I still like the way they turned out. I had no idea paintining would be soooo relaxing. I really love it. I have a lot to learn but I am so enjoying experimenting at the moment with them. I used the Untamed Beauty stamp set and the sentiment is from the Every Breath  stamp set.
 


Thanks so much for stopping by xox
